Two years have passed since Carrie Bradshaw finally bagged John "Mr. Big" Preston, the man she was always meant to be with. Just as her friend Charlotte must deal with her young daughter's "terrible two's", Carrie must deal with her relationship taking a turn for the worse - Big likes to watch old black-and-white movies on TV and eat take-out food, which prevents Carrie from feeling like the free-wheeling party girl she used to be. Meanwhile, Miranda copes with a new boss that can't handle an intelligent, powerful woman, and Samantha works a public relations angle that gets the fashionable foursome an all-expense-paid trip to Abu Dhabi. Written by The Massie Twins

definitely not a happy hour (or 2 and 1/2!)
30 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have never written a review of a film before on this site, but watching this film has made me so angry and disappointed that i felt i had to say something.

I am 23 and like most girls have loved the sex and the city TV series and the first film, so was very much looking forward to this second instalment I went to see this with my mum and a friend and her mum, we are all different ages, and not one of us had a good time, or could say anything positive about this film when we left the cinema.

It has little story line, and the 4 girls who i loved watching in the first film, now seem just shallow and completely devoid of normal human reactions/emotions and behaviour.

The way the women act in Abu Dhabi is embarrassing and completely disrespectful to the countries culture.

Basically don't waste your money on this hyped up piece of fluff, the outfits may be nice to look at, but there is no substance at all.
